Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) Exhibit Program
The goal of the KSL Exhibit Program is to serve as a visual engagement and physical access point for KSL. Overall, this exhibit program enhances the KSL experience and coincides with many of the Goals and Objectives of KSL as specified in the 2015-2018 Strategic Plan.
Objectives of the KSL Exhibit Program:
The exhibit program at KSL utilizes images, texts, artifacts, artworks, and multimedia objects to communicate an exhibit’s thesis. Both derivatives and original objects are utilized pending security, condition, and environmental circumstances. All KSL exhibits are designed to present objects of visual or scholarly merit while minimizing the possibility of loss or damage. Environment and security are routinely monitored.
All KSL exhibits are free and open to the public and are subject to KSL hours and policies. Guided tours of specific exhibits are available by appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org Visitors are welcome to photograph the exhibits, though flash photography is not permitted. Reasonable efforts will be made to ensure that all exhibits are accessible to everyone. Exhibits in KSL will not constitute a physical hazard or impede regular library use.
